Make an Impact the World Will See
Public urban education isn’t for everyone, but it’s the calling of our staff—and we answer it with conviction, pride, and dedication. We’re difference-makers who go all-in. Our purpose is to ensure an excellent education for all students, positively influencing the lives of the Black and Brown students we serve.
Invest in Leadership
for Future Generations
As a free public charter school, Foundation Academies students receive $4,336 less funding per student than their peers in Trenton’s traditional public district schools.
The result? Eight consecutive years of 100% college acceptance.
With such a powerful return on spending, can you imagine how many more students we could educate, nurture, and empower to go to college if more donors made it possible to bridge the funding gap?
